We see our lives in 3 ways. The past. The present. The future.

We tend to focus on the past, dither in the present, and basically ignore the future.

Which is why I like to look at our lives, as stories! We write the story as our life goes on, once an event has happened, the words on the pages cant be erased. But the good thing is, at any given moment, you can decide the next move, the next chapter.

There are hundreds of options to choose from at any opportunity. You could have a gun pointed to your head, you will still have millions of options on what you do next.

You dont have to follow the crowd, if you do, everybodys story will be the same, and nobody will read your book! Your book doesn’t get published until you leave this earth.

So in reality, there will be a lot of pages, a lot of places where you can make the book interesting.

The good thing is, if your book is good, people will follow your book, read it often, talk about it, and there will even be revisions of it as your legacy lives on. Taking your book to further places, as other people live through you!

We are each put on earth to carve out little bit of it, to make a path for ourselves, and those following behind us.

Learn from the past, act for the present and plan for the future


Getting somebody to agree with you

Short one to keep it sweet! 😉

If you are wanting to increase the chances of somebody agreeing with you, nod whilst you are talking.

This will trick the brain into thinking what you are saying, is correct!


Compare only with yourself

People proceed through life at different rates. Some sky rocket to their dreams in a matter of months, some never make it.

By comparing yourself to others, you will be down hearted. Not everybody is in the same boat, and people with the same dreams, will have different circumstances, which alter the speeds they get there.

So I suggest comparing yourself, only with you! You need to look at where you are now, to your past, and where you want to be. Are you progressing at the speed you want? If at all? Set yourself milestones for certain dates/times. And try to push yourself to them. If you are smashing your milestones, make them harder, push yourself.


Kill hatred with kindness

We all have times when we get flared up, when somebody or something has just touched one too many of our nerves, and we lash out.

If somebody else is in a shit mood, neutralise that mood with positivity and kindness. They are a negative entity in that moment, which can so easily be passed onto you. So you need to make sure you stay positive.

This can work for anything. Something uncontrollable getting you down?

Kill it with kindness. Change your perspective of it. See what positive is coming from it, or what could potentially come from it. This is a skill that can be mastered over time, and is very important for us to keep pushing foreward.

So next time somebody is being a dick, and just in a horrible mood, neutralise them with positivity. Show them the light!!!!


Why some people hate you

when you start to stand out, people are going to start paying attention to you. This can either be positive, or negative. People are either going to like and support what you do, or they aren’t.

When you are an average Joe, and decide to not do a lot, people wont notice you. You wont be putting strain on other peoples stage light, you wont be jeopardising someone else success.

Don’t be afraid to get in the way of somebody else. We arent on earth to let other people through, sometimes we should, but most of the time we should be bull-dosing through.

Fuck the haters. Fuck the doubters. Just do you. Whatever that is.


Mental health

Our health should always be a big priority in our life, and we should pay a lot of attention to it, but often, one of the biggest factors, is frequently missed out.

Our mental health, is just as important as our physical health.

Make sure you are paying attention to what your mind is telling you. Often it can be manipulated, and it might be worth looking into some techniques on how to look after our minds, as our mind controls everything we do and how we perceive everything.


Tips for meditation

Meditation is one of the keys to true happiness, allowing us to fully be in the present and appreciate our surroundings.

Here are some tips I use for getting real benefits from my meditation.

  1. Write down your current mood on a scale of one to ten. one being poor, bottom of the earth, ten being as happy as can be, top of the world.
  2. Get comfy, this could be sitting down, standing up, cross legged, indoors, outside, whatever makes you comfortable for the next 15 minutes.
  3. Once comfy, look around, focus completely on everything around you. Take in all the colours and appreciate everything around you. The shelter you are under, the comfort you are in, the colours you are witnessing, everything you see!
  4. Now close your eyes. Work your way from the bottom of your body to the top. Feel your feet firm on the ground, the feel of the floor applying pressure to the bottom of them. The hairs on your legs slowly raise as a crisp breeze blows them, sending a tingle through you. Your middle section, comfortably sat on a cushion, your finger tips gently resting on the arms of a chair, feeling the smooth wood beneath them. Your shoulders pushed back, fully being able to expand your chest, letting in a huge gasp of air and releasing as much as possible. Up to your sight, the sight of nothing, but the smell of a burning candle, and the sounds of passing cars. Whatever your situation, however you’re positioned and wherever you are, work your way up, and feel everything.
  5. Now focus on breathing, push shoulders back, fully expand your diaphragm, fill your lungs, hold it, then release every last bit of stale air, ready for the next fresh breath.
  6. You should continue to focus on your breathing, but just notice the thoughts that go through your head. We constantly had hundreds of thoughts passing through our consciousness. Just notice what passes through, and try to slow down the traffic.
  7. After 15 minutes of focusing on your breathing, and you feel you have come to a point where are fully relaxed, go back to the note you made earlier on your mood, and compare your mood now, any bets it has elevated!


As soon as you progress, move onto a new phase of life, life will demand something else of you. It will require a new strength, for you to dig deep once again.

This is how we climb the ladder, how we get to achieve our goals and our dreams. Its like when you get to the peak of a mountain, usually you will think you are there, but there is usually another peak that you didn’t see. And once you’ve climbed every mountain, there is another one to climb. It doesn’t stop unless you stop it.

The people at the top of the mountain, are still trying to climb the next mountain, to stay ahead of the rest, but one thing is for sure, you have to keep climbing, no time to rest.


Ways to feel happier and calmer

  1. Recognise you’re doing the best you can, work to your own morals and boundaries, not others, and thats all you can expect form yourself
  2. Journal daily – and count your blessings
  3. Take 5-10 minutes daily to sit in silence and just take in your surroundings, appreciate what you have and where you are.
  4. Spend time with safe friends and family. And don’t be afraid to ask for support.
  5. Take care of hour health. Eat healthy. Sleep well. Drink water. Exercise.
  6. Focus 20% on problems, and 80% on solutions. Let go of what you can’t control.

Looking both ways

Currently there is so little faith in humanity, that for the majority of people, when they cross a one way street, they look both ways. What can this say about our trust for other people? The thing is, we as individuals can take act and not allow to settle for such bullshit.

Smile at strangers, talk to strangers, let strangers go before you. All these kind gestures literally mean nothing, but just restore humanity just that tiny bit, making it a less hostile place to live.
